In 2011, the belfry of the Seraphim-Sarov Church was built in the city of Shchelkovo, where every day the bells perform the midday chime with the melody 'The city is golden'.

Above the blue sky
There is a city of gold
With transparent gates
And with a bright wall.

And in that city there is a garden:
All herbs and flowers.
Animals are walking there
Unprecedented beauty.

One like a red firemane lion,
The other is an ox full of eyes.
The third is the golden eagle of heaven,
Whose gaze is so bright and unforgettable ...

And in the blue sky
One star is burning.
She is yours, oh my angel,
She is always yours.

He who loves is loved.
He who is light is holy.
Let the star lead you
The road to the wonderful garden.

There you will be greeted by a fiery lion
And a blue ox full of eyes.
With them is the golden eagle of heaven,
Whose gaze is so bright and unforgettable ...
